The Magical Bond between Two Hearts: A Wreck-It-Ralph Fan Fiction
Prologue: Lucy’s Adventure Begins
There was always something special about her. Whether it is her magical powers or her kindness to others, Lucy was someone to count on as a friend. The sad part about her was that she was an outcast ever since her game was plugged in at Litwak’s Family Fun Center and Arcade. When her game, Shining Magic, was plugged in, gamers came from every nearby neighborhood to play it. It was almost as popular as the first games first plugged into Litwak’s Arcade.
As a young child Lucy was indeed different from the rest of her fellow players. All of the little children would scold and laugh at her for being so different.
“It’s not my fault for being so different.” She would always reply, yet no one listened.
The only person that would stick around Lucy was her twin sister named Daisy. Daisy was the most popular player in the arcade, and the strongest of them all. Every night when the arcade closes, Daisy would run off with Lucy into the Shadow Forest and have lots of adventures.
Lucy would ask: “Where are we going Daisy?”
“You’ll see.” She would reply.
The adventures they went on ranged from finding The Hidden Nest, to exploring the Ruins of Our Past, right down to looking at the tunnel that lead to Grand Central Station.
“What do you think is beyond that gate Lucy?” Daisy asked one day.
“I don’t know,” Lucy replied nervously, “But maybe we shouldn’t go. It could be dangerous.”
“Oh, come on Lucy!” Daisy chortled, “It can’t be that bad of a place!”
She grabbed on to Lucy’s shoulder. “Think about it…” she whispered, “Millions of other gamers just like us right outside our very game, can you imagine it?”
Lucy looked at her sister, and then stared into the dark tunnel that leads out of her home and into a world full of unknown and doubt. She had never thought of leaving a place that she felt she didn’t belong in. All those years of being treated like an outcast by her peers, laughed at for having the only power in her world that no one else had.
“I….” she started, and then sadly sighed.
“What’s the matter sis?” asked Daisy.
Lucy looked at her sister. She saw her sister as the big hope in her whole life, yet Lucy felt she was being distant with her as well as the rest.
“Nothing.” She replied.
A smile spread across Daisy’s face, so Lucy tried to bear a smile to let her sister know that she was alright. She was not happy though, Lucy was very unhappy to be alive. Yet she managed to bring a smile to her sad face. “Daisy… I wish….”
“HEY LET’S GO!!!” Daisy shouted, already running.
Lucy shrugged it off, and ran to catch up with her sister as they headed back to the school.
“GO, GO!!!!” Daisy shouted.
“I’M GOING!!!!” Lucy shouted back.
Fire and Ice whizzed by their faces as the girls made their way to the tunnel. As Lucy ran, she looked back to see the destruction that lay behind her. A huge, dark shadowy figure towered above the carnage.
“Keep running!!” Daisy yelled.
The shadowy figure turned to look at the little figure of Lucy. She stopped right in her tracks, terrified as the figure made its way closer and closer. Lucy was struck down in fear. Suddenly something pushed her down. She tumbled and rolled down until she stopped right at the tunnel. Pain went through her arms and legs as she struggled to get up. Her legs quivered as she stood up.
“Daisy, where is Daisy?!” was Lucy’s first thought. She turned around and saw a horrible sight. Daisy, Lucy’s sister and her only friend in her world…was gone. Swallowed up by the darkness that consumed her home. All she could do now was run…run away from the darkness and into the tunnel that lead to safety.
At first the tunnel was so dark that Lucy was unable to see past her hands. Lucy felt so lost without her sister to guide her. But then, she saw something in the dark.
“What is it?” she wondered, “I can’t make it out.”
Lucy walked slowly toward it blindly. Suddenly she felt a warm sensation reaching out to her. It seems to reach out to touch the very being of her. She looked back at what used to be her home.
“Daisy…” Lucy sighed sadly. Her eyes began to tear up.
“No! I can’t give up. My sister wouldn’t let me.”
She took a deep breath then with a strong confidence, ran towards what was to be the end of the tunnel. Out of nowhere there came a bright light. Shielding her eyes Lucy stumbled out of the tunnel into the doorway that would lead to Grand Central Station. Looking up she saw a bright light bulb in the middle of the ceiling, towering above her.
“Where am I?” Lucy muttered drowsily.
She looked above to find an illuminated sign that read:
Out of Order: No Trespassing
“That’s my game!” she shouted dazedly, “But why does it say Out of Order?”
The light bulb above began to flicker. Lucy began to realize that she was not at home anymore: she was in what seemed to be the real world. Slowly Lucy sank down to the floor, hugging her arms to her knees with tears stinging her eyes.
“I wish Daisy was here…”she sadly thought, tears streaming down her face, “I miss my sister, my teachers; I even miss my classmates that always picked on me.” She smiled at the thought, but then shrugged it off.
Now the light bulb was starting to go out. Then something moved from the tunnel behind Lucy. She turned, frightened to think that the shadowy figure was after her again. A flash of light zipped by, knocking her down. Rubbing her head she sat back up, to find that a beautiful, white dove was staring right into her face.
“WOAH, AHH!!” She screamed as the dove fluttered in the air to avoid Lucy’s flailing. The dove then landed right on Lucy’s shoulder. She tensed up, fearing the dove would peck at her, but the bird simply just sat still on her shoulder. After a while Lucy was able to relax her arms and let the dove stay on her shoulder. Slowly she stood up, being careful not to harm the dove.
“It seems to be asleep,” she thought, trying not to wake it, “I wonder….”
She slowly moved her hand to the dove’s head. Just about when she was about to touch it, the dove shot its eyes open. For a moment the two of them stared at each other, with Lucy’s hand outstretched to the bird. Then ever so slightly, the dove moved its head to Lucy’s outstretched hand. Lucy giggled as she stroked the dove’s head to its wings.
“Looks like we’re going to be stuck here for a while, huh?” she asked the dove.
The dove shook its feathers in reply. “You probably don’t know what I’m talking about, do you?” she said to the dove. The bird looked at her with its big eyes. Lucy slowly sank back down to the floor once again.
“You know, I could use a friend to take care of.” She muttered to herself, “What do you think?” she asked, turning to the dove.
“Coo,” the dove replied.
Lucy smiled. “It’s settled then. I’m going to take care of you.”
Just at that time, the light bulb above went out completely.
